The New Science of Virtues website was designed as a research networking tool for virtues scholars and as an information hub where virtue-related news, events, and publications are regularly posted. The website will be updated to reflect the work of the Science of Virtues Research Network as individual research projects progress and as new ideas and lines of inquiry emerge. In addition to communicating the relevance of A New Science of Virtues to a broader audience, the website is in place to encourage conversations and potential collaborations among scholars from multiple fields worldwide. To that end, interested investigators may create personal profiles and communicate with one another on an international level. Anyone may become a website Network Member by registering here.The website has many features that would be of interest to scholars, research scientists, and thoughtful lay readers:
• Profiles: Creating a profile page allows other scholars to find you. Your profile may include your education, affiliation, a link to your website, your recent publications, research interests, a photo, and a short biographical sketch. When you add your research interests to your profile, the website creates text hyperlinks that allow you to generate a list of all other Network Members who have listed the same research interest.• Discussions: Bloggers are currently being recruited for the website. To blog, please send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org. While there is a permissions process for submitting content to the blog, any Network Member may post comments in response to any blog entry by clicking the “Add Comment” button on the right-hand sidebar of the Discussions Tab.• Publications: Current publications are updated regularly. Network Members may post publications of their own or one of another author that may be of interest to other virtues scholars. You may do this by clicking on the right-hand sidebar button, “Add Publication”, located on the Publications Tab. Please restrict your postings to peer-reviewed journals in this section. If you want to post a pdf file directly to the website, please contact email@example.com. • News: News items that relate to the virtues are regularly updated as well. This part of the website serves to connect the research being done in this project to other current research and events. Again, any Network Member may post a news item by clicking on the right-hand sidebar button, “Post News Release”, located on the News Tab.• Research: This part of the website will be dedicated to communicating the progress of the research that is funded by this project. Videos, project summaries, and updates will soon be posted in this space.• RSS Feeds: You may choose to be informed when new blog entries, publications, or news items are added to the website through a Google Reader or similar application. On the News, Publications, and Discussions Tabs you may do this by clicking on one of the “Subscribe” links under “Syndication” in the right-hand sidebar.
